Premises Liability Lawyers in Phoenix, AZ
If a person is harmed because of an unsafe premise, the person or business who owns the premise is responsible for any sustained injuries. An unsafe and dangerous property can lead to various injuries. These injuries include serious injury, brain injury, or, in some cases, wrongful death.
Steps Involved in a Premises Liability Case
Many times, a slippery floor in a local Phoenix supermarket can cause someone to slip and fall and sustain a back injury or broken bones. Property owners have a responsibility to maintain their premises in order to avoid accidents and dangerous conditions.
In order to prove a premises liability case, our Premises Liability Lawyers must establish:
- That the condition on the property was dangerous
- That the owner knew, or should have known, about the dangerous condition
- That the owner had a reasonable opportunity to warn others of the condition and/or correct the condition
If we establish those three elements, then the owner of the property will be responsible for the incurred injuries, which include:
- Future Lost Wages
- Loss in the Quality of Your Life
- Lost Wages
- Medical Bills and Expenses
- Pain and Suffering
- Permanent Impairment
Claims Involving Minor Children
When a minor (someone under 18 years of age) has a personal injury claim, in many cases, there is an extra set of procedures that apply to protect the interests of the minor. Specifically, the minor, usually through their attorney, will petition the probate court for approval of the minor settlement. This includes the amount of the settlement, the medical expenses to be paid from the settlement, the attorney's fees and costs, and the net settlement for the minor claimant. A more detailed explanation of this process is explained on our Minor Child Injury Pages.
Claims against Government Agencies or Public Entities
When a government or public employee or agency is negligent and causes an injury, there is a markedly different process involved as compared to a claim against an individual or private business. There is a much shorter time frame to bring a claim and a lawsuit. Therefore, there is an increased urgency to obtain legal counsel to timely submit a claim against a government agency or public entity. A more detailed explanation is available on our Government or Public Entities Claims Pages.
We are able to resolve the overwhelming majority of our cases relatively promptly and without ever having to go to court.

When that occurs, our office will thoroughly explain the litigation process, including the risks, benefits, and how it relates to your case before we file litigation.
